A study of the career of John of Ibelin, followed by his record of the institutions, government and resources of the kingdom of Jerusalem in the 13c.

Edbury has given us not merely an authoritative and lucid survey of the life of a great Frankish magnate, but a fresh and valuable overview of Latin Styria in the middle decades of the thirteenth century on the eve of its downfall. HISTORY A valuable critical edition and translation of the `appendices' - which deal with the army, courts, and Church of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem - to 1185-1186 and provides a cogent and nuanced commentary...The book is introduced by a well-documented essay on the Ibelin family and its fortunes...packed with useful and interesting material. CHOICE The first major comprehensive study of the Ibelins from the twelfth to the mid-thirteenth century...highly readable and important book. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW
